Events for National Volunteering Week

Sligo Volunteer Centre is organising a number of events to mark National Volunteering Week.

This year will mark a historic year for volunteering in Ireland as the Government develops the first ever national volunteering strategy.

Events in Sligo will run from the 13th to the 19th of May and organisations and community groups are being encouraged to host their own events throughout the week to thank their volunteers.

Sligo Volunteer Centre Manager Ciara Herity outlines what will be happening over the course of the week.
